Crossing our borders

Pat Gauthier’s piece depicting the proposed route of the Northern Gateway pipeline through her property is currently on display in the Art Space gallery above Books and Company in Prince George as part of a group show called Pipe Up. It is the ninth annual environmental art show in Prince George. Gauthier’s piece depicts her personal feelings in relation to the effect of the Enbridge pipeline crossing the ranch where she lives. The pipeline crosses three water ways in the area, the Necoslie River, the Stuart River, and then Pitka Creek which runs the length of her 1,400 acre ranch. If a spill did happen on the ranch Gauthier is concerned the cattle would not be able to drink water from Pitka Creek for years. Where the pipeline leaves the ranch is on a small acreage that she and her husband subdivided out of the ranch, to retire on. Gauthier worries the view property will be reduced in value and the pipeline limits where the couple can locate buildings and move equipment around. While there is some compensation Gauthier does not feel it is sufficient to be left with the abandoned pipe. Pat Gauthier Photo

Not-so-clean sweep for Fort Ruth Lloyd Caledonia Courier The District of Fort St. James is trying to clean up the streets. The only problem is, they do not have the equipment they need to do the job. The District of Fort St. James does not own their own street sweeper, instead, the task is contracted out to Vanderhoof, which can only provide the service once they are done sweeping their own streets. “We don’t necessarily get it when we want or need it,” said Kevin Crook, Chief Administrative Officer for the District. “And of course, there is a significant cost to bring it up.” However, with increased industrial traffic through town from both the mine and the logging in the area trucking logs to southern mills, the streets need attention more frequently, and the mayor and council have received more comments from residents and are more concerned for pedestrian health and cyclist safety. “The dirt on the side of the road is pushing them into the middle of the road and then of course there’s just not enough space for two logging trucks and a bicycle in that very narrow space in the middle,” said Councillor Joan Burdeniuk who is also on the Transporta-

tion Committee. “For me it is a safety issue, as well as a cosmetic issue.” “We want to encourage people to be biking and walking, and to do that we thought the sweeper would be excellent for that as well,” said Crook. The Transportation Committee’s recommendation is for there to be more frequent street sweeping, in whatever way the District can make this happen, however, service from Vanderhoof is limited by their own street sweeping and manpower requirements. “They’ve been very accommodating, as much as they can,” said Burdeniuk. “It’s just we need a bit more than they can offer.” The District did not have the room in recent budgets to purchase a street sweeper, which they estimated would cost around $100,000, and the District has been looking informally for grants for the sweeper for up to two years but so far unsuccessfully. So they had hoped to approach the industry users who are adding to the issue through the increased traffic to therefore help out by contributing towards the purchase. “We were hoping that they could contribute to the quality of life here by supporting the purchase,” said Crook. So far, Carrier Lumber and Dunkley Lumber were both sent letters requesting contributions towards the purchase, but neither one has expressed interest in doing so. “The feeling is that the increased use of the road is making it dirtier,” said Burdeniuk. “That’s the first kick at the can, we’re not going to give up on it yet.”

Talking trash Ruth Lloyd Caledonia Courier

The Regional District of Bulkley-Nechako (RDBN) is going to be discussing waste transfer stations at their next meeting on April 18. Staff at the waste transfer stations across the region had brought forward concerns regarding reuse sheds and safety around salvaging at transfer sites at a recent waste management committee meeting. The committee has now brought these concerns forward and the RDBN will be discussing possible options to address the issues. The concern around reuse sheds was people bringing dirty items or “ransacking” the sheds and leaving a mess behind, as well as the dumping of end-of-life items such as electronics at sites where there is no electronics recycling, such as Fort St. James. The nearest electronic recycling is in Vanderhoof, according to Bill Miller of the RDBN and so when people leave those items in the reuse shed they are just creating work for the staff. Miller said the reuse sheds had strong support at the committee meeting and while closing the sheds was brought forward as an option, he does not think this idea was supported or would go forward from the RDBN meeting. Instead, he expects to hear discussion around how to make the sheds more effective, because they do help to reduce the amount of items put into the landfill. “We’re always looking at trying to reduce the amount of waste we’re burying,” said Miller. The RDBN and their waste management committee will also be trying to integrate the new rules regarding product and packaging management which will be coming into effect in May 2014. The new rules will charge consumers up front for the cost of dealing with the packaging and products at their end of life, and the producers will have to work on ways to deal with the products and packaging.

Future of NIFP uncertain after mill fire Ruth Lloyd Caledonia Courier An early-morning fire on April 5 seriously damaged the Northern Interior Forest Products mill. The fire burnt the interior of the mill building, but the metal structure did keep the fire contained within the building, according to the fire department. The cause of the fire is still under investigation according to Ben Hoy of KDL Group, which owns the mill. The fire department did say the fire may have originated in the beehive burner but the report was still in progress. The fire was discovered in the early morning hours by an employee, and no one else was on site, which Hoy said they are grateful for. “We’re just relieved and happy nobody was injured,” he said. The Fort St. James Volunteer Fire Department was called to the fire at 5:51 a.m. the Friday morning and arrived on the scene at the mill on Tachie Road by 6:10 a.m. The back of the mill building was already engulfed when the firefighters arrived, and their initial engagement with the fire was delayed while they waited for BC Hydro to make the building safe for the crews due to the large power sources on site. The fire department was on the scene extinguishing the fire until 2 p.m. The mill employed 14 people and produced

fence posts and rails and Hoy said it is too early to know the cost of the damage or if they will be able to rebuild. Mayor Rob MacDougall said he and council will be working with the owners towards rebuilding if

possible. MacDougall himself had hauled logs to the mill and said it was a major factor in making use of logs which otherwise would have been left as waste, increasing the usable fibre in beetle-killed logs and reducing the amount burnt on logging blocks.

Just a phase BC Power outage attributed to wind or wildlife Ruth Lloyd Caledonia Courier The April 9 power outage which had around 2,200 homes out of power for most of the day is being attributed to a “phase to phase fault” according to BC Hydro. In locations where there are three lines at the top of the poles, if high wind or a bird contact allows for the formation of a contact between two of the lines, a fault can cause a power outage. BC Hydro said crews did patrol the line and found nothing and then unsuccessfully attempted to restore power around noon. When this attempt failed, crews again patrolled the lines and still did not find the cause of the problem. However, when the lines were re-energized around 2:45 p.m., the power remained on, and so BC Hydro has chalked up the problem to a phase-to-phase fault.

The fickleness of spring Ruth Lloyd Caledonia Courier Oh spring, how cruel a mistress you can be. It was only yesterday when I was out on my bicycle, riding in the sunshine, and last week I stripped down to a t-shirt for a run. Today it is snowing and overcast, the mountains obscured by both clouds and falling snow, the lake a blank white wall, no horizon in sight. The roller coast of emotional turmoil that is spring transition is here, and all it takes is the warm sun on our faces to feel like smiling and forgetting about our troubles. But then the clouds return and so, it sometimes seems, do our troubles. I sometimes imagine spring is the way we are reminded we are at the mercy of our environment, and while we have managed to manufacture comfortable protection from the elements, they still hold great power over us. Like puppets on a string, we dance when the cue is given as the sun breaks through the clouds, and alternatively sit forlorn when the sun is taken away, staring out the window as the cold and dark return to haunt us. But the days get longer, and so we become more hopeful, remembering the beauty of summer and the feeling of sun on our bare shoulders. Soon the snow will be gone, and soon the lake will open up and bicycles will once again be the easiest way to get across town and enjoy some sunshine. It just feels like it’s taking forever … have faith, it will come.

Time to shovel the lawn

Allan Wishart Prince George Free Press

Spring is in the air. One way to tell is the number of people you see shovelling snow from their lawns back onto their driveways. Another way is to notice the number of transportation devices on the road which are neither cars nor trucks. OK, what I mean is motorcycles and bicycles. I saw a number of two wheeled vehicles, both powered and non, on the streets of Prince George over the weekend, and I have some astute (which may be overstating it) observations on their use. Actually, I’m going to start with a fourwheel vehicle operator who was lucky I wasn’t driving my car the way he was operating his vehicle. I was on Ahbau, preparing to turn onto Rainbow, when I realized there was someone in the lane I was going to turn in to. It was a skateboard, whose operator had hopped off when he realized a vehicle somewhat bigger than his (and with a legal right to the lane) was preparing to turn. He and a friend had been riding their skateboards in the traffic lane while two other friends rode their bikes in the bike lane (although on the wrong side of the street). Of course, seeing bikes being ridden on the

wrong side of the road was not an uncommon sight on the weekend. At one point on Saturday while I was out and about, I started keeping track. I saw four cyclists on the wrong side of the road, four on the sidewalk, and six with no helmets (some of whom were also in one of the first two categories). Then Sunday night I saw something which may have been the topper: A cyclist coming the wrong way on the street shortly after 11 p.m., with no reflective material of any sort on the bike or the rider, and not wearing a helmet. I also saw a number of motorcycles out on the roads this weekend, and my one thought as I watched one rider weave his way along 15th Avenue was, “And I think I’ve got it bad with the potholes.” Yes, it’s easier for a motorcycle to avoid a pothole (assuming the rider is paying attention) but if they hit one of the bigger ones, there is a possibility of a) being flipped right off the bike, or b) failing to come out the other side. I will say I also saw a number of cyclists who were riding on the right side of the road, as close to the curb as possible and wearing a helmet, just so it’s clear most cyclists obey the laws of the road. Once again, though, it’s the few who don’t who catch my attention more often.

The District of Fort St. James is expanding their Pitch-In Week activities this year, with a number of events. Coordinated by Mel Chesnutt, event planner for the District, a number of local groups are participating and helping to promote greener living and reducing our waste. The events are especially timely given the recent discussions at the Regional District of BulkleyNechako about the waste transfer stations and re-use sheds. While for a number of years the District of Fort St. James has provided free garbage bags and gloves to community groups and members wanting to help clean up after the snow uncovers a winter's worth of trash along our streets, this year there are workshops, a film viewing, an art show and tours of the newly rebuilt Integris Recycling Center. The art show, titled Other People's Trash…, is sponsored by the Fort St. James Community Arts Council and will be at the Integris Credit Union between April 17 and May 3 and will feature art made out of reclaimed or recycled materials. The Free the Children group will be showing a film at the Fort St. James National Historic Site on April 22 at 7 p.m. titled Surviving Progress. The Greening Up Fort St. James Society will be hosting class tours on April 22 of their new recycling centre, recently rebuilt after it was destroyed in a fire last year. A vermi-composting (worm composting) workshop will be held at the Fort St. James Library to help people find out how to get super-efficient worm composting going at home. The free workshop will take place on April 23 at 6:30 p.m. There are also twoMel contests running, sponsored Chestnut Owner by the District ofbarehandslandscaping@gmail.com Fort St. James: The Upcycling Challenge and the www.barehandslandscaping.com Go Green Photo Contest.

8 Household items that you can recycle

1. Appliances. Some cities have appliance recycling or rebate programs. An older, less efficient appliance can be turned in for a rebate on a new energy-efficient model. If a computer is in good working order, it may be sold or passed on to another person who can put it to use. Some seniors are not interested in RAM or processor speed. They just want a means of connecting to the Internet and can benefit from a recycled machine. Otherwise, computers may be donated to schools. For those who simply must recycle the machine, there are different drop~off zones for computers and peripherals, like printers. Some goodwill organizations will take them and turn them into profits. 2. Batteries. These pint-size sources of power contain heavy metals that can leak out into the ground and water supplies. They should be brought to recycling centres to be disposed of properly. Otherwise, consider buying recyclable batteries and a charger. 3. Mattresses. Thanks to bed bug epidemics, fewer people are willing to purchase or take on a used mattress. For those who are upgrading to a new mattress and have an old one to discard, check with your local municipality to find out which transfer station will recycle the mattress. Some mattress stores will cart away an old mattress if a new one is purchased. 4. Scrap Metal. Those with scrap metal clogging up garages or basements can actually make some cash off these items. Scrap metal is in demand, and there are dealers who handle the sale and trade of these materials. 5. CDs and DVDs. The number of these plastic discs in circulation is high. Find out where they can be recycled or turn them into handy items for other uses. For example, use a CD as a reflector on a mailbox or at the end of the driveway. Pintrest has some great suggestions for reusing CDs and DVDs. 6. CFL Bulbs. The compact Fluorescent bulbs save energy but they should be recycled

Good planning = good outcome for snowmobilers Ruth Lloyd Caledonia Courier Rescuers are commending a group of snowmobilers after a rescue on April 7 near Prince George. Five snowmobilers were on the Seeback Forest Service Road near the McGregor River when one young woman was thrown from her snowmobile, which then hit her. The snowmobiler in her twenties had suspected back injuries and could not be moved safely. But Prince George Search and Rescue is crediting good trip planning with the woman's rescue. The group had taken three precautions which Dale Bull of Prince George Search and Rescue said ensured the group was as safe as possible. They carried the backcountry avalanche gear needed for avalanche terrain, they carried survival equipment in backpacks with them and they left a trip plan with friends. When the group did not return on time, two friends set out with first aid equipment to find the group. At the same time, one of the group had made their way out to cell service and called for help. Nine search and rescue members went out to find the group, and two personnel stayed back to provide logistical support. The rescuers got the call at around 7 p.m. and made contact with the group at 3:30 a.m., bringing the snowmobilers warm blankets, food and water. The group was well-equipped enough to already have a fire going to keep them warm.

At first light, a helicopter came in with paramedics to evacuate the injured snowmobiler for treatment. While her injuries were not considered life-threatening, and are not expected to be debilitating, she has been sent to Vancouver for further treatment and there is believed to be damage to her spine, according to res-

cuers. The relatively happy ending in the incident is credited to the presence of a trip plan. "Had that trip plan not been there, no one would have gone looking for them," said Bull, adding this could have slowed the rescue down significantly.

Courier Election 2013: Comparing candidates

Political diversity descends upon Nechako Lakes riding ahead of May 14, 2013 general election in British Columbia B.C. Conservative Dan Brooks

B.C. NDP Sussanne Skidmore-Hewlett

B.C. Liberal John Rustad

Daniel Brooks has been nominated to run for the B.C. Conservatives in Nechako Lakes in the upcoming May election. A guide outfitter from the Vanderhoof area for the past 15 years, Brooks was born and raised here. A devout family man, Brooks is married and the father of seven daughters. He has a degree in Classical (Greek and Roman) Studies from the University of Waterloo. Brooks said his real passion is the outdoors - especially hunting and fishing - and that he speaks Moose better than Latin. Brooks founded and chairs the local Vanderhoof tourism association called the Upper Nechako Wilderness Council. For the past 15 years Dan has been a vocal participant and tourism advocate in land use planning processes including the Land and Resource Management Plan and the Sustainable Forest Management Plan Public Advisory Group. Brooks felt compelled to enter B.C. politics when the B.C. Liberals adopted the Provincial Wildlife Allocation Policy, which has crippled his outfitting business to the point where he will be forced to shut down operations in three years, he said. Brooks said he would fight to ensure the Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline never spills. He said he is a passionate fighter for all just causes and an innovative problem solver with a pragmatic approach to fixing government.

Sussanne Skidmore-Hewlett is the NDP candidate running for Nechako Lakes MLA in the May 2013 election. She has worked in Prince George for more than 14 years and has recreational property in Fraser Lake. She is married with an adult son. Skidmore-Hewlett achieved her Social Services Diploma in 1996 and subsequently moved to Prince George to begin her career within the public sector. She has worked most of her career within the Ministry of Justice and currently oversees the facilitation of training for the court services staff in the northern region. Also, she sits on the BCGEU Provincial Executive, Equity and Human Rights Committee and Women's Committee. Skidmore-Hewlett wants the provincial government to restrict raw log exports to create more jobs in B.C.'s forestry sector. She supports the development of new strategies to ensure the forest industry is sustainable and creating family-supporting jobs, utilizing natural resources efficiently and reinvesting in our publicly owned forest lands. Skidmore-Hewlett is opposed to the Enbridge pipeline and believes the province needs to strengthen environmental protections and take control of decisions on similar energy projects to ensure the interests and concerns of citizens, businesses and First Nations in Nechako Lakes are being heard properly.

John Rustad is running for re-election as Nechako Lakes MLA for the B.C. Liberals. Rustad was elected in May 2009 and was previously elected for the Prince George-Omineca riding in 2005. Born and raised in Prince George, Rustad has worked in the forest industry for more than 20 years. In 1995 he formed Western Geographic Information Systems Inc., a consulting service for the forest industry. He is a former GIS department manager for Timberline Forest Inventory Consultants in Prince George. In September 2012, Rustad was appointed as parliamentary secretary for forestry to the Minister of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations. He currently co-chairs the Farm Assessment Review Panel and has chaired the Select Standing Committee on Crown Corporations, the Select Standing Committee to Appoint a Police Complaint Commissioner and the Government Caucus Committee on Social Development. If re-elected, Rustad, who supports the Enbridge pipeline, plans to advocate for more infrastructure improvements in Nechako Lakes, focus on the forestry file and move forward with recommendations made by the Mid-Term Timber Supply Committee. Expanding post-secondary education in the region is also a high priority, he said. John Rustad and his wife Kim were married in 1995. Together they enjoy theatre, golf, skiing, and the outdoors.

RCMP report On April 4 at 4:30 p.m., RCMP responded to a report of an assault on the Nak'azdli Reserve on the Lower Road. One female was arrested at the scene and was later released on bail. RCMP are recommending charges of assault and uttering threats. April 9 at around 4:30 p.m., an individual was reported to be on Nak'azdli Reserve who was on a Band Council Resolution to not set foot on the reserve. The man was taken into custody by RCMP to remove him from the reserve and searched. Drugs were found in his possession at the time and he was then arrested for possession and released on a promise to appear in court. Later on April 9 at 11:40 p.m., RCMP responded to a complaint of a possible assault with a weapon on Mountain View Road. RCMP responded and at the scene found an alleged assault had taken place but both the male and female involved were on conditions. The male was arrested for assault and breach of conditions and the female was arrested for breach of conditions as well. Both remain in custody until their court date.

April Hughes of Northern Health was in Fort St. James on April 10 to present a cheque for $20,000 to the community trails initiative. The money was from a Healthier Communities grant from Northern Health and will go towards a trail-mapping initiative being organized by the District of Fort St. James and a number of user groups in the community. “It’s so exciting,” said Hughes. “The work that was done here actually fed into the work in Fraser Lake and Vanderhoof.” If you have seen a photograph you would like in the The trails group would like to work on Caledonia Courier mapping trails in the call your local community paper at area and into the future 250-996-8618 look at developing or improving trails as well or stop by to order at and promoting trail Lakeshore Realty - 169 Stuart Drive West, Fort St. James connections between communities.

Ready, set, learn

LEFT: Hudson Gainor was one of the youngsters checking out some pre-kindergarten information for parents and kids at David Hoy Elementary on April 11. The event is held each year and health care workers and teachers volunteer to provide parents with the opportunity to get some information on things like dental health, reading to your child and more. The event is sponsored by the Early Childhood Learning (ECL) group and the Ministry of Education. While the Ministry funding decreased recently, the ECL group helped to cover the reduction in funding. Ruth Lloyd/Caledonia Courier

Awards postponed While normally held in the late winter, this year’s Better Business Awards have been postponed, and may not take place until late summer. The awards, normally an annual initiative by the Fort St. James Chamber of Commerce, needed a change, according to Miguel Romero, Chamber manager. “We just wanted to try something different,” said Romero. The Stuart Lake Golf Course is the potential location, with the possible combination of their AGM.

April is Cancer Awareness Month April is the month to fight back! Wear a daffodil to show your support for Canadians living with cancer and let them know that no one has to face cancer alone. Daffodil Month, held every April, is a national fundraising campaign of the Canadian Cancer Society. During the month, Society volunteers are involved with numerous activities to raise vital funds for the fight against cancer. Depending on location, activities include selling fresh daffodils; asking people to make a donation and wear a daffodil pin throughout the month to show their support for people living with cancer; and canvassing neighbourhoods for donations door to door. As part of its annual Daffodil Month activities the Canadian Cancer Society has designated April 27 as Daffodil Day. This is a special day when Canadians can show their support for those living with cancer and to remember those who have died. Funds raised throughout the month help the Canadian Cancer Society prevent cancer, fund research to outsmart cancer, empower, inform and support Canadians living with cancer and advocate for public policies to improve the health of Canadians. The Canadian Cancer Society is dedicated to the goal of controlling and eventually conquering cancer. Each year, the Canadian Cancer Society commits a percentage of the money we raise to support leadingedge cancer research. The Society allocates the money through a strict national review process that involves

Since the beginning of this partnership, the Canadian Cancer Society has invested more than $1 billion to cancer research. This funding has contributed to a revolution in our understanding of cancer, which has set the stage for a new era in cancer detection, therapy and prevention. The challenge now is to continue to expand and exploit existing knowledge to develop even better treatments, detection and prevention strategies. In February 2009, the Canadian Cancer Society and the former National Cancer Institute of Canada integrated into a single organization. Research scientific experts and lay people, who are often cancer survivors. This process ensures that the money is directed only to excellent cancer research across Canada. Some history In 1947, the former National Cancer Institute of Canada was formed through a joint initiative of the Canadian Cancer Society and the Department of National Health and Welfare. In the 1940s, there was little knowledge of how to prevent cancer. There were no tools for early detection of cancer, and the only treatments available for cancer patients were surgery and a crude form of radiation therapy. During the more than 60 years that the former NCIC and Canadian Cancer Society worked in partnership, many of cancer’s mysteries have slowly been solved as research has led to increased knowledge about the disease.

continues to be an integral part of the Canadian Cancer Society’s mission. The grant application and review process is managed by the Canadian Cancer Society Research Institute. The Canadian Cancer Society hosts a variety of special event fundraising activities in communities across Canada. Participating in one of our special events is a great way to have fun, build community spirit and join the fight against cancer. Thanks to the work of our volunteers and staff, and the generosity of our donors, we’re leading the fight against cancer.

What is cancer? Cancer is a group of diseases characterized by uncontrolled growth and spread of abnormal cells. for the sake of your health, it’s important to familiarize yourself with the facts about various forms of cancer and their symptoms.

Cancer is the leading cause of premature death in Canada. No matter what your age, gender or race, you could be at risk for developing cancer. Early detection can save lives, so get screened today as part of your commitment to a healthy lifestyle. Sponsored by
